A tried-and-true classic in all its locations, this is no exception. Try its exclusive Palm Beach Salad: a unique, delicious addition to the menu with lump crab and avocado. The bustling happy hour and ever-friendly staff will make you feel like you are a regular. 375 S. County Road, 561.855.2030


Taste chef Clay Conley’s inventive take on American fare in this chic, buzzing atmosphere that is a favorite among foodies and trendsetters of all ages. Try the steak tartare with black truffle and crispy egg yolk; mushroom pizza with black truffle vinaigrette and Gruyere; or the squid ink orecchiette. Reservations are a must! 350 S. County Road, 561.833.3450

Café Boulud

The high-end Café Boulud features elegant French favorites by chef-owner Daniel Boulud with a focus on fresh seafood. Top-notch service and a newly renovated interior offers clean, neutral tones and the outdoor terrace will encourage you to linger throughout the day or night. Try the bistro-style steak tartare or the CBPB Burger (named best of Palm Beach); jackets recommended for gentlemen during high season. The Brazilian Court Hotel, 301 Australian Ave., 561.655.6060

Cafe L’Europe

This elegant old-world French restaurant on Worth Avenue has been loved by locals since 1980. You’ll feel like you are stepping into one of Paris’ finest restaurants, complete with a piano player and an extensive wine list. Try the sliced Scottish-smoked salmon appetizer and the roasted crispy Long Island duck. 331 S. County Road, 561.655.4020

Pizza Al Fresco

A family favorite, this Palm Beach Italian outdoor restaurant is tucked into the historic Via Mizner off Worth Avenue. Split a delicious wood-fired pizza (its namesake pizza is a favorite—with mozzarella, prosciutto, arugula and Parmesan) and glass of wine while enjoying the beautiful European-feel courtyard. 14 Via Mizner, 561.832.0032
